How far has it come that Oracle has to play the addiction tactic, e.g. give some thing away in the hope that people got addicted and will die to give you money in the future to keep on using your stuff. This really has to hurt the (re)sellers that used to laugh you in the face if you didn't have a budget of at least 5 digits.
On a more serious note, I do think what we see here is the FOSS world slowly but steadily expanding it's area leaving the proprietary world fighting for the remaining. And the good things is that FOSS is here to stay, even the fail over or a legal unjustified halt of Red Hat would IMO not be able to stop FOSS. I am sure there will be dirty fights and tactics in the future but I don't see how that will ever stop the open source world.
